well the new plugs and wires helped alot. the inly reson I got the E3s was becuase they didnt have NGK plugs at the time so I got them pretty cheap they just dont work for me I guess. My E30 does have a pretty terrible idle and it throws that 1222 code whenever it is idling at a stop. after I take off the weak idle goes away and the car runs like a champ. I have heard of pulling off my Idle Control Valve and giving it a good cleaning. I also have oil being pulled into my intake. theres oil on my air filter and all up in my throttle body and everywhere. First thuing that comes to mind is PCV but I just wanted to get some second opinions on what it could be. Im not trying to shotgun parts into the thing....
